It’s that time of the year again in Minnesota…fresh and local produce will be available very soon. It has been a strange weather here with winter lingering into April and May and then blazing hot temps so it should be interesting.

Regardless of the weather, each there is a “dirty dozen” list – foods that are better options if organically grown because of pesticides. The list does seem to change from year to year. I thought this article/slideshow really explains it well.


Eating organic is expensive and there are non-harmful food rinses that can remove pesticides. But, no matter your choice – do eat healthy and includes lots of fresh fruits and vegetables on your plate.\

Take care,
